Click here to read more about the differences between CBD for animals and humans.
The difference, briefly explained
Most CBD oils for humans are what we call a full-spectrum, which means that they contain a complete spectrum of cannabinoids. Additionally, CBD oil for humans may contain up to 0.2% THC. Now, looking at CBD products for animals (primarily CBD oil) then there are a few differences that are extremely important. CBD for animals must not contain any THC what so ever. Although 0.2% THC is not much, it can still be extremely harmful if used on animals. Furthermore, animals have a lot more receptors in the brain, which means that they are way more sensitive to cannabinoids. Therefore, CBD products for animals are often a lot milder and they are often also not full-spectrum.
Now, what does the difference between CBD for animals and CBD for humans mean?
It can, at times, be a bit of a challenge to figure out which CBD are actually the best ones out there, and furthermore difficult to figure out which ones to use for your animals. In general, the difference between CBD for animals and CBD for humans is that CBD for animals is not very strong and that they are not a full-spectrum product. This means that there are some cannabinoids they do not contain, including THC. Therefore, it is extremely important that you do a thorough research and ask a lot of questions before you buy CBD for your animals. Last but not least, it is important to remember that animals cannot communicate to you how they feel, and therefore you have to pay extra attention to the dosage that you might give to your animal.
